Richard Hammond stars in Morrisons Christmas ad

LONDON - Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond saddles up some huskies, with a shopping trolley, in Morrison's Christmas ad.

As he traverses the wintry tundra, he explains exactly what he wants from his perfect Christmas, from Scotch Salmon and Santa and Elves to stuffed roast turkey and snowmen and reindeer.

Halfway through, he realises that he can get all of this at Morrisons and whips the huskies around.

When in the shop he bumps into other celebs such as Nick Hancock and Denis Van Outen.
